Re: conure prices?

Oh no. That's the average price for a gcc. My breeder has them for 350 $ being the lowest depending on mutation. The highest I saw for a gcc was 400$

Re: conure prices?

I guess it all depends on where you live but for our green cheeks normals are 200, cinnamons are 225, yellow sideds are 250 and pineapples are 275. Pet stores are always more expensive though. Regardless of price, finding a healthy well socialized bird should be top priority and if possible, try to find a bird that picks you. I've had so many people come over expecting to get a certain bird and a different one will pick them instead k

Re: conure prices?

I know how that feels, we were at a bird show two weeks ago that had a rose breasted too I fell in love with. Mind you, I have never really cared for rbt's in the past, I'm more of a white cockatoo kind of girl lol. But I really hit it off with this bird, unfortunately the woman insisted on getting $800 for him and he was an older bird to top it off. She had no background info on him and I really got the feeling she was just flipping him. It killed me to leave him there like that but that sad fact is I didn't go prepared to spend that much money on a bird, especially one that the seller couldn't even tell me any history on

Re: conure prices?

Try breeders for your birds that way you will get a more healthy bird with a lower price. $700 for a Sun is way to high. I paid $450 for mine. Never buy a bird from Petsmart or Petco they will sell high priced unhealthy birds anyway. Peace to you.

Re: conure prices?

Here at the local Petco (Wilmington, NC) the Green Cheeks are normally $350 regardless of color mutation, but until Nov. 17th they're on sale for $200. Given that this particular Petco seems to have very healthy and happy birds, I think $200 would be an excellent price for the little Yellow Sided they have there. Not sure how that stacks up around the country, but it seems to be a little cheaper than most places. Couldn't say on the breeders, since I don't have any nearby though.

Re: conure prices?

Gcc's are not native to Australia, but our prices seems to be a lot cheaper... A handraised 'normal' sells for $120..
